Will to Take Retaliatory Measures against Warmongers Declared
Pyongyang, July 25 (KCNA) -- The U.S. and south Korean warmongers announced that they would stage joint naval maneuvers from July 25 to 28 and the Ulji Focus Guardian joint exercises and joint anti-submarine exercises from August 18 to 26 and several other joint naval exercises till September in the subsequent period.

The U.S. is set to stage these exercises with 20 odd warships including nuclear-powered carrier "George Washington" and at least 200 warplanes of different types including F-22 Raptors involved.

Minju Joson Sunday observes in a signed commentary carried in this regard:

It is the ulterior intention of the U.S. and south Korean warmongers to ignite a nuclear war against the DPRK when they are given a chance while staging saber-rattling for several months in the waters of the east and west seas of Korea with huge armed forces involved.

Their plan to stage the largest-ever nuclear war exercises against the DPRK under the pretext of the warship sinking case is not only an open military provocation against the DPRK but a criminal act of mocking and insulting the United Nations and the international community.

The U.S. remains unchanged in its hostile policy towards the DPRK to stifle it by force of arms and so does the group of traitors in its intention to do harm to fellow countrymen with the help of outside forces. Instead, they have become all the more undisguised as the days go by.

It is, however, a pipedream for them to try to browbeat the DPRK by force of arms.

The DPRK has the Korean People's Army, an invincible strong army equipped with nuclear deterrent recognized by the world people.

The army and people of the DPRK will take strong retaliatory measures with dignity by dint of their powerful nuclear deterrent, as a spokesman for the DPRK National Defence Commission had declared in his statement, in order to cope with the nuclear war exercises kicked off by the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet warmongers. They will start Korean-style sacred war for retaliation any time they deem it necessary.

The DPRK has never made an empty talk.
